    pcm parking ticket but disabled 22nd Dec 16 at 10:14 PM
    I have recieved a parking ticket on a private housing estate. The company is Parking Control Management of Slough. It isn't a police or official council one.
    I have a bad back and have difficulty in walking, some days worse than others. This particular day I went to collect my grand daughter from after school club, and was in particular pain, so didn't park 400 yards away in supermarket as I usually do. The school is on a private housing estate , with no provision near school for disabled parking. I sat in my car , on a bit of pavement, not even double yellow lines. I was in the vehicle with the badge displayed. I was too busy looking in school door to notice someone taking a photo of my car!I was there for 2 to 3 minutes.I know I have to appeal but want to know about this clause on their notice quoting Protections of Freedoms Act Schedule 4. I feel this is unfair to people with blue badges and my car was causing no trouble at all. What should I say in the appeal which I know will get thrown out. I feel like saying take me to court to save the hassle as believe they don't like doing that as it costs them too much. Also I feel I would win anyway. Any advice please.Thanks Dee

    Morning. I am editing version of witness statement with Coupon-mad's help. I just need advice from anyone about before I try and get it in the post today. Do I include my original appeal to PCM? The evidence I gave to MCOL business centre or will my local court already have that? Also do I include the refusal to cancel parking charge from Estate manager? Any advise gratefully received. Thank you

    Include everything you might want to talk about and rely on. If you attached evidence to the first defence you should not have done, and it's needed now. Your local court will not have it.

    Sorry to be a pain but can't seem to work out what email address for Gladstones Knutsford to forward my witness statement etc to. The only one I have if for payment. Online I can only find one for enquiries. Anyone got any ideas?

    Have sent my w/s etc to the court. As for emailing Gladstones with the exact same I have hit a problem.I have phoned several times but both their telephone lines go onto a queue with music, on a promise that ' your call is important to us'. I wanted to enquire about what email address to forward it to. I have sent to their enquiries email address as the payment one would be of no good. I asked them to acknowledge my emails , but surprise surprise no reply. Do you think they do this to make you worry? Maybe they do this regularly. Can only hope that maybe I will finally get through.
